Winners and losers for Comicbooks / Super Shows in Spring 2017

During the spring 2017 season, I put a moratorium on doing episode-by-episode write-ups on the TV shows I was following. I felt like there were starting to get to be too many shows and that too many of the ones I was doing write-ups on had become comic book based. Obviously, I love that genre, but I wanted to take a step back and remember what it was like watching those shows normally. I also figured that there's more than enough people doing up to the minute coverage of this whole genre. So, I sat back and watched, and here were my takeaways from the season. 7591

House of Cards

Initially, I thought I'd be able to write about this show without containing spoilers. It turns out that I was wrong. So, I'll try to do this by writing a brief spoiler-free section and then continuing on into heavy, heavy spoilers.  1314

Disturb Reality elicits some reactions in the hood

So, normally, I try not to rely on racial humor but this is such a funny combination of a premise and a realization of that premise that I had to share it. First, watch this clip from Aziz Ansari's special Buried Alive, which is available on Netflix: Now, watch this video from the youtube channel "Disturb Reality", where this dude shows some street magic tricks to some black audiences. I think this video took place in Compton. If that's the case, I give this dude a lot of credit for walking around with that much money out in the open. Some people may find this racist because of the title or the idea that it's a stereotype about a specific race. While this is a stereotype, I don't find the video to be particularly harmful or racist as no one is being belittled in the process. Bottom line, it's pretty funny.
